(JNS.org) The America-Israel Friendship League honored four Israeli businesswomen Thursday during the 10th annual Israel Day at the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE).
Inbal Orpaz, a high tech correspondent for the Israeli business publication The Marker, moderated a discussion and spoke to the women about how they have contributed to the U.S.- Israel relationship.
The honorees included Tzameret Fuerst, entrepreneur and co-founder of Circ MedTech, which developed PrePex, an FDA-approved device for HIV protection; Karen Haruvi, Teva Pharmaceuticals’ SVP of global generic business development and alliance management; Noa Raviv, fashion designer and artist; and Liat Mordechay Hertanu, co-founder of the 24me personal assistant app.
Daneilla Rilov, the America-Israel Friendship League’s executive director, said that “Israel, like the United States, celebrates its gender diversity. [NYSE Israel Day] is an example of just a few of the common traits both countries have.”
